Experience Spring and Theater at Flower Show

March 03, 2010

Need to escape winter? Love the theater? Head down to Navy Pier from Saturday, March 6 through Sunday, March 14 for the 2010 Chicago Flower & Garden Show.

“Cultivating Great Performances” focuses on Chicago as a theater town. Each design came from the creative minds of teams from the Goodman Theatre, the Lookingglass Theatre and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Gardening professionals took those designs and married together the drama of the stage with the beauty of horticulture.

Intended for all from professionals to those lacking a green thumb, this year’s show features 25 garden displays as well as a vendor Marketplace with more than 125 exhibitors full of services and products related to gardening and green living.

Terry Guen and her team, who put together the Lurie Garden and other aspects of Millenium Park, designed this year’s new floor plan as a streetscape, complete with a winding boulevard and cul de sacs throughout.

With free educational seminars, hands-on workshops, Garden Gourmet chefs, and a kid’s activity garden full of swings, a sandbox, a bug exhibit and more, this show is sure to inspire all.
